Hi, I did (finally) setup the drupal bittorrent module experimentally.
 I didn't do any load testing of the tracker but I doubt it would be
an issue unless you are serving the latest hollywood blockbuster..

It would be cool if there was a d.o. or drupalcon.org site running
this module --
although webseeding could mean significant bandwidth usage.  This is
optional however; you could rely on the community to seed for you.
You could just create torrents and upload them to the drupal site,
with the files permanently hosted elsewhere like archive.org

btw it would be nice to have some integration between a video
uploading module & bittorrent module (some sort of "glue" module, such
that you upload a video and a torrent is created automatically)
